Slow Travel is a state of mind that allows appreciating the journey and profoundly experiencing your destination & local people. You could call it quality traveling. It is not about visiting a number of attractions, but about traveling deeper.

So, where do we come in? We confess we love to slow travel. Being out and about, off the beaten path, discovering new places. We take you to places in Turkey you hadn’t yet heard of and also show you a personal selection of overnight stays oozing with character. From our own experience, we know how hard it is to find the right place to stay: a place that enhances our senses, rather than diminishing them. We put a lot of time and research into things. And that is why we built this Slow Travel Guide: to share our experience. We are doing the legwork, saving you time while inspiring you.

We are not passing by; we are not tourists, we are locals with inside knowledge and the time and resources to explore Turkey one slow step at a time.
Why Turkey? Because that’s where we live. That is why this blog about Turkey is like no other.

You won’t find sponsored or promoted content on this website because we don’t believe in it. We merely share what we know and love. The places we’ve been to were booked and paid for through the regular channels. In short, we mean what we say and we believe in what we recommend.

To make things easier for you, we provide direct links to relevant travel guides or to quickly book accommodations, flights, or fun and engaging things to do. These can be affiliate links. This means you will pay the same amount or even less than what you would pay when visiting these web pages through your search engine. We will receive a tiny commission that will help us to keep this website up and running. You can read more about this in our Privacy Policy.

We hope you will enjoy using and exploring this Slow Travel Guide just as much as we enjoy making it!
